There were many 36-foot ventilated box cars in the 1945-1952 years.

I keep looking at photos of 'vents', and just don't see a good way to do the barred door. A sandwich of three etchings would do for the door bars and frame, with some molded styrene door rollers, but that just isn't an Accurail 'easy assembly' kit.


Dimensionally, a lot of vents are the same size as this car.
